On 17th January 1953 Spitfire LF.16 LA236 of the Burmese Conversion Squadron had a landing accident at its base at RAF Llandow. The pilot, PO Sein Hla Maung of the Burmese Air Force, allowed the aircraft to drift to starboard as it was landing, subjecting the undercarriage to heavy sideways loads and causing it to collapse.
